Actual Price Index at Tbilisi Market - October 2018

| Living in Georgia | 2 seen

Three years ago I launched a fun project - Actual Price Index at Tbilisi market, just to document price movements for veggies and fruits in the market, depending on the season. In total I have made two kinds of research for 2015 and 2016, see: Actual Price Index in Tbilisi Market (Georgia) - At Start of October 2015 and Actual Price Index at Tbilisi Market - March 2016

Now, today, three years later I once again decided to measure, how prices have changed in the past three years.

Here is my basket of goods I bought in Tbilisi market on October 1, 2018
